Bible Monday 11/20: Impatience

Studying this morning's four readings from the St. James Daily Devotional Guide (click to subscribe), I examined myself with these questions. Where is your self-examination leading today?

Psalm 89:1-52. Verses 46, 49, how long, Lord? Where are you, Lord? Do I give myself permission to ask God those hard questions? What's my toughest issue with him today?

II Chronicles 31:1-21. Verse 21 KJV, evaluating my Christian walk, what do I with all my heart? What do I do with less than all my heart? Prayer point?

Revelation 2:18-29. Verses 26-28 KJV, what does this "overcoming" mean practically in my life? Being given the morning star, is that in the future or now? Significance for  me?

Luke 18:18-23. How does this difficult teaching apply to my present life situation? Can it be obeyed gradually? Why doesn't Jesus mention the first four commandments?
